Aldgate, Tower Hamlets

27 Commercial Road is one of a number of tall buildings in Aldgate and the City Fringe which Lichfields is advising on. Our role involved preparing a Daylight and Sunlight assessment for a landmark 21 storey hotel development. The scheme unavoidably results in levels of natural light below the BRE guidance. To substantiate these breaches of the guidance, an extensive review of other recently approved developments in Tower Hamlets was undertaken to illustrate that the scheme’s impacts were well within the magnitude of change previously considered acceptable by the Local Planning Authority.

This major development will have a hugely positive effect on the character and identity of Aldgate. This is an area that Lichfields knows well, having worked on at least five major developments in this part of the City Fringe.
